    Ben, please ignore our "brother" from the extreme south. He sometimes gets his panties in a wad and lashes out in bad form. Hope you'll post more on both projects.

    yes, at an angle between the left rear corner of the cab pointed toward the left rear leaf spring. The bed sides will be modified to follow that line as well, then straight back along the inside of the tires in a step-side fashion.

    Very nice! Do you plan to put bed sides and a tail gate over the rear portion?

    yes, the current plan is to make a step side ish bed. start at the outside corners of the rear cab wall and angle back towards the leaf springs, then straight back with wide exposed rear fenders

    More progress on the floor.

    Started with paper templates.









    Next, finish trimming, runs a few beads and weld in

    The drivers side is finished and welded in.



    I was able to drop this side a bit and get even more leg room!
